why does a guitar need a wah?? answer is becasue it can. you can get some funky tones out of a bass wah and its fun to improv with.

The morley PWA-2 is also pretty good. listen to clips of both first before buying either, though. they're very different

the Dunlop 105Q is a very solid pedal from my epxerince with it.


Yeah, i've played that it was very good

how about the EBS wah????
I really like there gear but it's pricey

I have no experience with them, but I was looking into them a while ago. If I'm remembering correctly, for the amount you're paying, they're a little on the mediocre side.

Apparently, the EBS Wahone occupies the same tonal range as the Crybaby bass, but rapes it tonewise. More expensive though.

The old (key word) Morley Power Wahs are supposed to be very good for bass as well. Not a fan of their Dual Bass Wah though.

Man, I just went and looked up some youtube videos of bass guitars with different wah pedals, and bass + wah sounds AWESOME! Very funky, and very different than a guitar + wah. I think this is a good idea. When I get to be a more intermediate player I think I'm going to get one too.

Why not? I have an envelope filter, and I also want a manual wah. Both have very different uses.

ive lost all faith in you not knowing who bootsy is ...kidding
but just to set this straight envelope filters are just not non foot controlled wahs its a wah through sweeping filters which is pretty much the same but it can still be controlled by a your foot limiting the amount of sweep and so on and i wouldnt waste you money on getting a wah to play metallica like things it may sound good in there but i dont think its worth it for doing metallica

So I'm trying to get this straight. With a normal wah I would have to have my foot actively making an up/down motion to get the sound I was looking for (I guess akin to the whammy bar on a guitar hero guitar), but with an envelope I can step on the pedal to find a set amount of wah that I like, and I can leave it to be a more passive wah?

I'm totally new to this obviously, but I think the OP asked a good question, and I'm just trying to learn at the same time

the best advice i can offer you is go to a store and TRY the stuff, they you'll see what you like

I have one (a morley PWB, to be precise) It's very good, but only truly useful if you're cliff burton fanatic (I am ). You need to eq it right (read: boost your low end as much as physically possible, cut treble if you have to) or else it will sound horrible. Also, I have trouble not making it distort. Plus, they're usually about $150-200 (I got mine for $135, but apparently this is quite cheap) and it has no battery, only a power cord, and only has a buffered bypass (as opposed to a "hard bypass"), meaning that it will mess with your tone a bit, and can cut your volume slightly.

In other words, if you want to replicate cliff's tone, and can put up with all the problem's, and can shell out the cash, it's good. Don't let that put you off, though. I quite like mine.

I was talking less the sound (obviously whammy and wah are different) and more the use. I was asking for clarity on how wah and envelope were different, and was trying to provide some sort of analogy. I was asking - with wah do I have to continue to pump it with my foot vs. with an envolope can I set it and forget it? Obviously it was a terrible analogy. I wasn't at all suggesting that whammy would ever sound the same as wah.

then yes.it is used much the same. the only big difference is that you use your foot, but you're obviously smart enough to know that.

Thanks, I get it now

Still, I've only been a bass player for about 5 days. I'll wait a good couple of months before I try and mess with the sound.

Envelope filters have the filter controlled by your playing dynamics. Louder playing forces the filter in one direction, and as the volume drops, it swings the other way. Autowahs are time based. Normal wah has the filter controlled by the foot movements.
